Help with reloading

Looking for someone who is willing to reload some ammo for me, my guy has stopped doing it, I have the loads worked up and will buy the powder, bullets, primers and dies, it’s for 300wsm and 7-08. Preferably in the Lancaster, York area, Thanks

Why not learn to do it yourself ? You should be able to pick up a used set up very reasonable. It opens up a whole new world.

most reloaders wont reload for someone they dont know. sometimes even for those they do know. liability is the main reason. i know that i dont reload for people i dont know as i dont want to be sued if something should happen. as jeff said, why not look into getting your own reloading setup and load for yourself.

If you have all the Data on the loads that your friend worked up for you it won't be that hard to get set up for yourself. If your going to load for hunting and do some casual shooting a Lee Anniversary Loading kit would have everything you need except the dies, powder, bullets ect. and I don't think they cost all that much. Also you could ask a local gunsmith to help in your selection most good gunsmiths are glad to get somebody started in reloading.

Reloading can be fun and is a good hobby for rainy day. Beware it can be habit forming....

Buy new, You will get hooked fast New stuff will last you a lifetime used not sure, Kits are the best pricing.

Good luck, Stant

Kits are less money than buying individual new pieces, I agree. I strongly disagree on not buying used.Find a local competitive shooter for advice would be your best bet. I don't remember the last time ,if ever, I heard some say I had to buy a new press mine is worn out. I have been loading for close 60 years, lots of competitive shooting, I have upgraded equipment, ruined some because I did something wrong (stupid). Outside of a wear item such as a cutter, I have never worn anything out despite loading thousands of rounds most years.

I purchased the Rock Chucker kit from Natchez, now how about the case trimmers, motorized or hand crank, obviously one is more expensive than the other but is it needed, I saw Battenfeld makes a case prep and trim tool all in one, has anyone used one of these, and Thanks for all the input so far!!
